Strange thing happened with the A/C today.  I was cruisin down the highway with the A/C on and I look down to grab my drink and noticed that both the little orange lights on the A/C,Fresh air buttons were out. I turned the fan to off and then on again an now nothing was happening(no air). I leave it off for a few minutes and noticed the orange light on the fresh air button was on again, so I turned the fan switch up-then the light went out and nothing. So I turned it off and waited some more, after another 5 min I switched it back on and it seemed to be OK. Well, then I stopped for gas and turned the key to off and opened the door and guess what?, the little lights were on and the a/c was running!!. I switched off the a/c, pumped the gas and drove home with the a/c on.  When I get home, I turn off the engine and the a/c is now off like its supposed to be. Very strange Wink Has this happened to anyone? Can anyone with electronics background help out? Thanks

The HVAC controls have died now. Nothing from them, no lights either. The radio also lost the programmed stations! Could this be a Body Control Module problem?

Thanks for the reply Tom
Turns out the BCM is ok Smiley . The Retained Accessory Power Relay in the fuse box had melted! Just got done talking to the tec, he said that a new fuse panel is on overnight order because the relay also damaged the panel. He said it was the first time he has seen this happen on an Aztek and that the teks have relatively few problems, mainly with the BCMs and A/C compressors. They said it should be ready tomorrow afternoon.

I also have them looking into the door lock programming feature that seems to be missing in the '03's without DIC. They can't call GM because it's Memorial Day. I should know something about it tomorrow.

Got my 'Tek back yesterday. A/C back on line. Smiley Dealer gave me a convertible for a loaner car Tongue So that was pretty cool.

About the Personalization(door lock) mode, GM says that they omitted this option for the '03s without DIC. <_<  And any reflash of the PCM would delete the autolocking feature altogether :angry: Maybe I will add the DIC later ^_^

A should add to this,now that I think about it, I played with the fuse box before this happened :ph34r: . I was looking to see if the fuses were there for the options I don't have-power seats,DVD etc.

Here's my weird A/C problem.

Yesterday as I was driving to work I noticed that the A/C stopped working I could feel warm humid air coming through the vents. This lasted for maybe 10 minutes then the the A/C started to work again.

Later that day when I went to lunch I again noticed that the A/C was not working.

Then during the drive home later that night the A/C worked the entire time.

So I've got a intermittent problem with the A/C. The condenser was replaced last year because of a bad seal.... What could be the problem now? Maybe another leak?

Thoughts?

I beleive a small leak could create the problem. The system has to have a pressure sensor in it so it will cut off the compressor when the pessure drops. The leak may be so small that the pressure has a chance to build up again and trigger the sensor. Or the pressure sensor could be bad. Good luck Greg.
